It is really disgusting how badly I've been procrastinating updating this blog. I have so many epic posts swirling around my head, that sitting down to type one of them up just seems monumental. Meanwhile I've been abusing twitter like it's my job for all the errant thoughts that come up in the meantime.

I've been extremely distracted lately. Or maybe just super focused, but on the wrong things. Or maybe it's the right things, but just not the things that lead to blogging and getting tasks done at work. I have the office to myself today, which is lonely, but nice. I might shut the office door and do some stretching. I just poured myself a green tea, so maybe that plus some yoga will energize me.

I have been destroying myself at the gym. I've exercised like 24 times this month so far. Last week I made it to the gym every morning, and went to both pilates classes. Made it to both pilates classes this week, too. I wish our good instructor would come back... anyway. I haven't really noticed much change on the scale, but I have definitely switched some of that fat over to muscle. People I don't see on a daily basis have noticed I look trimmer, which is nice to hear.

I visited my mom yesterday, as Wednesday was her 59th birthday. She was more alert than I've seen her in years, and the first thing she said when I walked in was "You cut your hair! It looks nice." Her speech is slow, and she doesn't get much, but it's an improvement. I guess they changed up her meds which has attributed to her alertness. However, she does do this very disconcerting thing where she constantly opens and closes her mouth and sticks her tongue out, and makes "um" noises. It's creepy, I won't lie. I should probably try to visit more frequently since now she remembers she misses me.

TV! Too much TV! I can barely keep up! In fact, I can't really keep up. Not and get the sleep I need. I'm ditching Fringe I decided. The Mentalist is so much better, and there's just too much going on Tuesdays as it is. House continues to not really impress me. It's not *bad*, it's just lightyears from how incredible it used to be. I kind of feel the same way about Grey's, just kinda "meh" about the whole thing, but I'm holding out hope. (Also, I love Owen! He better be back! <3) I'm worried Heroes is going to turn into LOST, getting overly complicated with a giant cast and answering questions with more questions. Bones continues to be absolutely amazing, and Sarah Connor remains top notch as well. I am sososososo excited for Desperate Houswives, Brothers & Sisters, and Pushing Daisies to come back this week!

Tonight, the debate! Tomorrow, a massage!!! and The Big E (in the pouring rain)! Right now, more work! Later, skaterz.

FYI, that's a common side effect of some psychiatric medications. It IS disconcerting, but it's "normal," just so you know.

She shouldn't be on any psychiatric medications, though she might be on some for reasons not psychiatric related. But yeah, I feel like if it was a big concern her doctor would've mentioned or tried to do something about it.

Well, thing is, a lot of psych meds have off-label uses for everything from weight loss to seizure control. So if they switched her meds up recently, there's a good chance that's what's going on.

Her aide said it's been going on since she started on dialysis (which okay, maybe but it's definitely gotten worse) and blamed the dialysis for it, but I'm like, "...that doesn't make sense."

Yeah, it sort of doesn't. That's ... weird. But like you said, if her doc didn't seem to be too worried, it's probably just one of those "really disconcertin but generally okay" things

AMEN! I was first concerned about that when they added those new characters at the beginning of last season. That's why I stopped watching LOST. I got so irritated with it!

Terminator is still rocking though :) Derek Reese... I have mixed feelings about him still.

I just love Summer so much in this. At first I was like, "Eh, maybe Sarah Connor will be one of those shows I can eliminate from my very cluttered list" but after the first episode I was like, "Nevermind, still totally awesome." :D

I need to get back into a schedule with exercising. It's been sporadic in the last couple of weeks.

I dvr'd The Mentalist tonight so I'm happy to hear it's good. I love Fringe so far so those are high praises for The Mentalist, IMO.

Have you watched the Mentalist yet? What'd you think?

Grey's had that effect on me, but yes, please can Kevin McKidd come back now?

SERIOUSLY. Is it bad I find him so much more interesting than any of the regulars at this point?

no, because then that would make me bad too.
